She published her first book, Talking about sex; a guide for adults on how to talk to kids and teenagers about sex, in 2014 and was very well received and nominated for The Female Book Award Of The Year. Her second book is a collection of columns and sexual Q& A, that will be published the summer of 2016.

Sigga Dogg is also the president of The Icelandic sexology association, that just hosted the Nordic Association of Clinical Sexology annual conference (2015), in Reykjavík, with Betty Dodson as a keynote speaker. Sigga Dogg’s mission is to change the way we talk about sex by using humor, honesty and facts. She believes in the power and importance of humor but also diversity and honesty, so she always carries with her a collection of various genital photographs to promote genital and body diversity and she hands out free, as well as condoms and lube to those who want it. Changing sexual perception and encouraging open and honest communication happens from the bottom up by inspiring one person.
